Dear Miss Snark,
Recently I came across an agency web site that included a page of short bios and photos of all their clients. The strange part was that several of the authors listed were not yet published. The titles of their novels were included with “out on submission” in parentheses, or something to that effect. And yes, this is a legitimate, albeit relatively green, agency.
Is it me, or is this outside the box? Personally, I would not want to be listed among clients on an agent’s page until my first book sold.
What is your opinion?
Well, I don't do that but it's also not the imminent arrival of the antichrist. And thinking outside the box isn't my idea of a bad thing either. I'm constantly kicking people in the keister to think of new ways to promote clients and projects. I have specially honed cowgirl boots and rollerskates for just such motivational talks.
